The Chicago Blackhawks host San Jose Sunday night for a Western Conference clash in the United Center. Last time these two teams met was in March of last year, when Chicago dispatched The Sharks by a 6-2 margin.
San Jose Sharks
San Jose’s offense has really struggled at the start of this year, however they’re once again a successful defensive workhorse.
On the offensive glass, The Sharks rank a paltry 27th on shots, and 24th on goals per game. This has been made possible by way of a puny 2.7 goals, on 28.6 shots per matchup.
Lamentably, their powerplay hasn’t been much better, only capitalizing on 17.9% of chances.
Impressively, The Sharks have the number 4th powerplay defense in the entire league, as they only allow teams to make the most of 12.5% of powerplays. Over and above, San Jose is only allowing 2.9 goals per game, on 30.2 shots.
The Blackhawks started the season off horribly, but since have rebounded winning 6 of their last 8 games.
Offensively, Chicago has been atrocious over the season, ranking 22nd and below on every offensive category. For example, they’re only scoring 2.2 goals on 28 shots per game on average, which ranks 29th and 31st sadly.
Fortunately, The Blackhawks have a glimmer of hope defensively, by way of their powerplay killing percentage. Currently, they rank 10th in the NHL, while being successful 84.5% of the time.
However, Chicago’s woefully letting in 3.3 goals an outing, on an average of 32.4 shots. With all of that being said, hockey can trick you with season wide stats, as The Blackhawks are rolling in current form and shouldn’t be slept on.
NHL Betting Trends:
- San Jose is 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against Chicago

Free San Jose Sharks vs. Chicago Blackhawks NHL Prediction
Surprising to us, San Jose is the underdog in this situation. Reason being, The Sharks have dominated Chicago in the recent past, and are the superior team.
To boot, San Jose has one of the best defenses in the league, and they shouldn’t have an issue shutting down this terrible Blackhawks offense. It appears it will be a low scoring game, favoring the road dog on paper.
Do be mindful of the fact, Chicago’s played well as of late, led mainly by amazing goaltender play. However, this bottom ranked offensive squad has a intensely tough task ahead in this deadly Sharks defense.
